Join Genesis via ZOOM as we pray novenas with Sr. Jane Comerford, CSJ

 

You’re invited to join Sr. Jane Comerford, CSJ, to pray Novenas with various intentions (see below for more details).

 

What is a Novena?

“Novena” comes from the Latin word “novem”, meaning nine. A novena is a nine-day period of prayer (no more than 5-10 minutes per session) to call upon God for special graces, petitions, or in praise.

 

How do I pray a Novena?

Sr. Jane Comerford will lead you in the brief prayer for each day which will be no more than 5-10 minutes per session. It is not necessary to pray at the same time every day or to pray the rosary in conjunction with the novena but you are always welcome to add those prayers if you want to.

 

What if I miss a day?

It’s okay! We suggest you either say two prayers in one day, one for the day you missed plus the current day, or just don’t sweat it and continue with the current day. There are no consequences and no expectations!

Circumambulating Perigrinatio

Sometimes, a calling begins with inner restlessness. A disquiet or tension, perhaps even an irritation. In the ups and downs of the day-to-day, it is easy to chalk these up to the ordinary trials and tribulations of daily life. Certainly, growing in maturity requires cultivating the ability to hold fast during turbulent times, not jumping ship at every inconvenience or upset.

Bringing Forth What Is Hidden

A while ago, Genesis received the gift of a canvas labyrinth along with a number of boxes of accessories, some easels and posters. Due to its size, the labyrinth will only fit in the Providence Room and time passed as we waited for the room to be available so we could unfold the labyrinth and walk it. In the meanwhile, Nick and Wayne stored the labyrinth, boxes and posters upstairs in a Carriage House closet. Weeks passed, then months. Years.

Microgreens, Mulberries and ‘Maters, Oh My!

These past weeks I’ve had occasion to cover Genesis’ kitchen so our beloved Chef Jen could have a couple of days off. I delighted in harvesting tart cherries from the tree behind the Carriage House and incorporating them into Rainbow Chard, bacon and cherry pizzas, Chilled Persian Soup, and cooking them down for a sauce over vanilla ice cream.
